5 volumes- midrash says spanish edition This set of books is not a translation of the chumash (bible), but an adaptation of the Midrashim. The author's goal was to capture the spirit behind the Midrashim and present the ideas in a meaningful way, as explained by the classic commentators of the Talmud and Midrash. Much of his philosophy was drawn from the eighteen-volume commentaries on the Midrash Raba, “Tiferet Zion,” written by a famous Jerusalem scholar, R. itzchak Z'ev Yaler (1843-1917). All Midrashim are based on authentic Torah sources that appear at the end of the book. The text was written in simple and clear colloquial Spanish for the benefit of the scholar and without overwhelming the layman.
